In the Folds – Collins Top

The Collins top is a loose-fitting trapeze-shaped top designed for woven fabrics. It is A-line in shape, perfect for hot summer days. It features a round neck, panel lines, a high-low hem and a centre-back opening, with a button and loop closure. Due to its length, the Collins top is the perfect top to pair with skirts or trousers that sit on or above the natural waist.

View A includes a three-piece raglan sleeve designed with extra volume, which creates a fun and interesting shape. The neckline is finished with bias binding.

View B is sleeveless and the neckline and armholes are finished with an all-in-one facing for a really clean and professional finish.

The Collins top is compatible with a range of different fabrics. Your choice of fabric will govern the silhouette you achieve.

Consider using light to mid-weight fabrics such as: linen, linen blends, cotton, gauze or chambray. For a softer silhouette, consider sateen, silk (crepe de chine or habotai) or viscose (rayon).

Softer fabrics will drape over the bust (and create soft flowy sleeves), while stiffer fabrics will create a more voluminous and structured silhouette.

Due to the number of panels in the Collins top, it is a great pattern to use to experiment with colour blocking and stripe direction.

In the Folds - photo 2.jpgIn the Folds came from a love of the creative making process, and the dream to share this experience with others. I now spend my time making thoughtful and detail-rich sewing patterns and resources for modern makers. Taking things slowly is in the foundations of my business, as I believe it’s important to take my time to create work that makers will love and cherish, and hopefully take their time with too. I aim to create patterns that makers can keep coming back to, season after season, regardless of changes in trends.

In 2015, when the idea of starting In the Folds was just a seedling, I saw an opportunity to create patterns that would help makers create beautiful and timeless garments. The patterns are not just a tool to get you to the end result (a finished garment), but a resource to support you to slow down and enjoy the process of making a beautiful and considered handmade wardrobe. It is my hope that by making your own clothes you can slow down, celebrate every stitch, learn something new and appreciate the amazing things you can do with your hands.

The In the Folds design aesthetic leans heavily towards the everyday. They’re pieces that will fit comfortably into your wardrobe, but will stand out with their interesting and refined details – timeless, yet modern – beautiful, yet understated. Finishes are thoughtful and considered – helping you to create garments that are beautiful both inside and out and teaching you the skills to make clothing that will last.
